Can't Recommend It 02/20/2014
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS10X OPTIMA 120mm FSB (Fluid Shield Bearing) Shark's Fin Blade CPU Cooler
Seems to cool well and is relatively quiet. Allowed me to overclock my FX-8320 without drama.
Is also relatively lightweight compared to other coolers its size which is good when you imagine what that weighted lever hanging off the motherboard could do to silicon should you ever need to transport your computer anywhere.
ABSURDLY difficult to install on a AM3+ socket, especially when compared to Cooler Master or even other Zalman coolers. I had been recommending this cooler at certain times when the price was favorable, but I really can't any more after installing one. There is NO REASON for a cooler like this to be so much trouble to install.
This review was for the Zalman CNPS10X CPU cooler.
